Anybody have any good tips? I'd be doing it myself as DH is unwilling to help.

We nightweaned ds about a month ago. We nurse before bed and then he says ni- night to the milk and I lay with him until he falls asleep. We have a small lamp with a very low wattage bulb and we plugged it into a timer. The lamp is set to come on at around 4 am (which is when ds naturallly wakes up to nurse) and he knows that when the light is on he can have milk again. Sometimes he wakes up before that and asks for milk and we just remind him that the light is not on and he setttles back down and goes to sleep. I felt that waiting until it was light out was too long but wanted him to KNOW when he could nurse again. It's been working really well for us.

That's a really neat idea - we may have to try it when we're ready to night wean!

Elisheva - Congrats!
